The S14 will be rebuild but nothing crazy.....cause most likely an S54 will replace it.
I am keeping the original though in case i ever decide to sell.
Its just more cost effective to put an S54 than a crazy S14.
Saying that i have started looking at supercharging.....

Progress has been slow but......Some teaser shots of things to come.......














BTW....just to keep the purists happy.....all original motor and drive train including harness will be kept so that it can go back to OEM in a day or so......


Spec of motor it Euro S50B32 with forged pistons and rods, ARP studs dry sump charge cooled and and supercharged. New Vanos and some minor extras. 6 speed gearbox with lightened flywheel. Expect close to 500 Bhp with bulletproof reliability.
Reason i am going this way is its cheaper(Cost is less than what the parts would be for 300bhp S14.) and more reliable plus nothing needs to be done that can not be reversed! Hopefully getting a standalone too and then go over 500 bhp and Racelogic traction control! Oil tank in the boot is a 15 ltr.

Taking motor apart for a freshen up at the moment!

The car its comming from is a known Nurburgring terrorist!

Loving this build just found this thread... have to say Magnus you guys in Iceland are so spoiled... great views out your shop window, beautiful countryside... great places to go winter 4 wheeling... Got any more pics of body/paint work?

Curious question why add the cabrio reinforcements? I can see the frame being stiffer but would they not also increase the chances for rust damage in the future with the water/salt traps? Being on the North Sea coast you need to be concerned about salt fog. I would make sure to rustproof everything underneath even if you don't intend to drive it in the rain.

Car will be rustproofed all over and then all cracks and holes sprayed with a special wax like material. I dont see why the reinforcements would cause any more rust though???

In any case here are some more pictures of the glassblasting room we made in our garage so we can continue....
